Actual Virtual Desktops 8.6.1

Get an Activity-Focused Workspace!

  • Get as many desktop space as you need
  • Organize your workspace by tasks
  • Customize each Virtual Desktop
  • Easy switch via Virtual Desktops
  • Your productivity can be increased several times!


Group Running Applications by Tasks

Create one virtual desktop solely for watching video files and listening music, another one - for chatting or reading books, put your email client and browser windows on another and your text editor and debugger on a fourth one etc. Each virtual desktop - for a separate task. In such a way switching between desktops means switching between tasks.

Keep Visible Relevant Windows Only

Actual Virtual Desktops makes it possible to see applications' windows needed for accomplishing the required task. Need to solve another task - simply switch to another virtual desktop with the already prepared windows for it.

Never minimize any of the applications, never close any of them. When you switch virtual desktops, all running Windows® programs just disappear from the screen and from the taskbar, but they are right there waiting when you switch back to a separate screen.


Move Windows between Virtual Desktops Instantly

Allocating windows between desktops can be done in a wink, either automatically at window startup or manually: via special Move to Virtual Desktop button title button/window menu item or via "Move to next desktop"/"Move to previous desktop" hotkeys. Choose the best option on your own!


Customize Each Virtual Desktop

To underline each desktop's look-and-feel, assign custom wallpapers to each virtual desktop and name them in any way you like: for example a desktop for playing video and listening music can be called "Multimedia" etc.


Switch Virtual Desktops Easily

Special Virtual Desktops Switcher window allows the quick and easy virtual desktops management. When you click It you can see the number of opened virtual desktops with thumbnails of applications opened on them.


Get Advantage of Multiple Monitors

Virtual desktops remain useful even if you have more than one physcal display. In such case, there are two modes available:

  • Classic - in this mode you have a single list of desktops, and each desktop spans all available monitors (i.e. the switching of desktops affects all windows on all monitors).

    In this mode Virtual Desktop Switcher can be cloned to all monitors.

  • Independent - this mode allows you treating each monitor as a separate workspace with its own set of "screen pages". In other words, when you switch the desktop on certain monitor - it affects windows only on that particular monitor; on other monitors, windows stay intact.

    In this mode each monitor has its own Virtual Desktop Switcher.
